Monday's 360 had good parts and not-so-good parts, which relates directly to how much I was interested in the subject matter and not an indication on the quality of the reports.

For example, the first report concerning Rep. Menendez and the woman who recanted her story about the sex scandal was probably well done but I just couldn't get into this or care either way.

However, Anderson's reporting on Dennis Rodman and North Korea was excellent IMHO. I loved Anderson's snide snarky remarks here and there, like after the George Stephananapoulus clip of Rodman explaining why Kim Jong Un is not such a bad guy, Anderson said, "That doesn't make any sense." I suppose talking to the Ling sisters was appropriate, given their background, but I couldn't help feeling they got on 360 because they were pals of Anderson's. Why not talk to the young man who was in Anderson's '60 Minutes' report?

Anderson's interview with Dr. Fauci was very good and hopefully the news of the HIV cured baby will portend great things in the next few years.

The best part of the Arias segment was again Toobin and Geragos talking. I wanted to hear more about the jury and how they will act. I am especially curious about the 'Juries can ask questions' deal in AZ and 2 other states.

Minnesota isn't one of those states. When I was on jury duty and involved in a case, I really wanted to ask a question but couldn't. Anyway in the jury room no one else cared about that particular point and we found the guy guilty.

If anyone in ATA Land is called for jury duty, do it. It's educational and enlightening and, for me, was a good experience.

By the time Anderson finished the second sentence, it was predictable that the Ridiculist would consist of clips of Anderson falling into giggle fits. Still amusing but I think he's done this once before.

I forgot to mention the Florida sinkhole and David Mattingly's excellent 'National Geographic'-esque report. Excellent reporting.
